CEO, Gary Brewer comments "JQuery, the JavaScript library, has had an awesome year; they have grown by almost 20% market share since the start of 2009 and have continued to grew into the first quarter of 2010. It's also interesting to note many of the other large website technology changes this year have been a result of browser version changes and search engine conformance".

Builtwith’s trends website shows Google Inc. has a lot of power in terms of technology usage on the web. Google Adsense and DoubleClick, both Google properties, control approximately 30% of the online advertising space; they also have their Google Analytics package running on every other (1 in 2) website. Google's custom search also tops the most used third party widget on the internet, with AddThis.com a close second. "Google really are the rulers of online", says Gary Brewer, "They offer quality products with zero outlay for the user, making them extremely popular".

BuiltWith.com trends also uncovers some of the biggest losers which included meta keywords, "Search engines have pretty much abandoned meta keyword tags from search results, many websites are also not adding or removing them total from their websites" says Gary Brewer.
